WIP - "Happy Memories: Azalea Town"

#1 Post by rinrin » Fri Dec 04, 2009 12:36 pm

It's time to announce one of the new games we're working on^-^
Happy Memories: Azalea town is a raising sim set in Modern Japan.
It's a story of a girl who stays in Japan to finish her studies when her parents move abroad on business.

Features:
* customizable character (you can change the hairstyle, buy clothes and even chose your own room)
* set in modern Japan
* six classmates to befriend
* lots of endings
* seasonal events and festivals (obon, hanami, matsuri etc.)
Some early WIP screenshots (no interface yet):

Lots of customization: chose a hair style, hair color...

...and even a room!
Live the life of a Japanese schoolgirl - join clubs at school, socialise with classmates, date, go shopping, find a part time job, blog, study for exams...
Make your character as mainstream or as otaku-ish as you like.

The ability to customize the look of the main character is a very neat idea. I don't believe I've seen that particular approach before. I hope production goes smoothly. :)
Currently in the pre-production stages of creating the VN Visit to Nowhere, a moderately dark modern fairytale. In progress thread will be created once out of the pre-production phase. =D

Plotting: 25%
Concept art: 80%
Demo: 50%

The third game I make will be a sim of some kind, I'm certain of it.

My 2nd one is already conceptualized so...

This actually looks kinda intriguing to play!
I like how you can customize your look. I jsut don't like how the text box looks like ~_~...

Yeah, you guys should use something more interesting... not textured, but a frame around the edges or even just a color instead of gray.

I'm pretty sure it'll be changed by the end. Their other game has a customized interface, so this one will likely follow suit.

It says in the first post, there's no interface yet...

Anyway, this looks so cool :]
I would definitely play a game like this.

Holy crazyness. This game looks awesome. Do you by chance have a mailing list or blog/website or anything so I could easily keep tabs on this? The artwork is amazing and the customizability and setting remind me of Tokimeki Memorial Girl's side :)
